Two alter egos of Russian musician, poet, netlabel administrator, and artist Evgenij V. Kharitonov join forces on Light Hour Of Darkness. Material recorded between 2006 and 2009 is blended into a single hour-long drone piece. Starting with catchy, vaguely tribal rhythms, backed by slowly-building wet static and percussive vocal samples, the track gets noisier along the way. The mix is very eclectic: at times taking the shape of straight harsh noise, nuoh-esque quiet mechanical groaning and hissing, or dark atmospherics, and that is just in the first half hour! Light Hour Of Darkness is a hefty testament to where Mr. Kharitonov has been and a good indication of where he will go in the future.
